Motoring Law

We can assist you if you are accused with a road traffic offence.

Our Approach

If you have been accused of an offence whether it be for speeding, use of a mobile phone, driving without due care and attention, dangerous driving, no insurance or any other road traffic offence we are here to help you.

If you are denying the offence we are highly experienced in taking matters to trial and our Advocate will present your case including cross-examination of the witnesses.

There are many technical requirements under the road traffic legislation and in some cases a technicality such as failing to serve a notice of intended prosecution within 14 days or to commence proceedings within 6 months will make any attempt at prosecution null and void.

Even if you are guilty of an offence we can be of great assistance to you.

If you are liable to receive penalty points which would take you to 12 or more points you should receive a minimum of 6 month disqualification.

However we have a very high success rate and many years experience in arguing exceptional hardship to the Court to prevent disqualification from driving.

In many cases you will not know whether you should contest the case and/or what your likely sentence is going to be and for that reason we provide an initial fixed fee diagnostic interview where we can provide initial advice upon the case and assess the likely outcome.


Costs

Depending on the nature of the offence and also your means we may be able to apply for Legal Aid to cover your case.

Even where Legal Aid is not available should the charges against you be dropped or you be acquitted of the offences we would then be able to recover our costs by way of a Defendant’s Costs Order from Central Funds.

In any event should you be liable for our costs on a private paying basis we will discuss with you a fixed fee or a budget cap to provide certainty of costs.

Maples supporting Macmillan Coffee Morning

On 29th September 2017 Maples Solicitors LLP will be hosting a coffee morning as part of Macmillan’s “World’s Biggest Coffee Morning”.

Tea, coffee and cakes will be served from 10:00am until 1:00pm and all donations received will go to Macmillan Cancer Support to assist them with providing medical, emotional, practical and financial support to those facing cancer and their families.

At the same time, Maples will also be running a free Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney and Probate clinic so that whilst you are in the office you may take the opportunity to discuss any of these with one of the Private Client Team with no obligation to commit. You can use the time to raise any questions you may have about making a Will, who you could appoint as Executors, whether you need a Power of Attorney or how a Power of Attorney works, for example.

Maples hope to see their existing clients join them for the coffee morning and very much look forward to meeting new people- everyone is welcome!

If you would like to discuss any matters in relation to Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney or any Probate related matters prior to the coffee morning then please contact one of the lawyers in our private client team:-

Testimonials

Gemma Mayer LLB

"I would highly recommend Maples Solicitors, especially Gemma Mayer, for any conveyancing work. The level of support and professionalism was excellent at all times. I also felt if I needed to ask or clarify anything that it was not an issue. Buying and selling a house is stressful enough, but Gemma helped me through it step by step."

Anita Toal LLB BA

"I think you are brilliant. You can use my comments above. You are efficient, friendly and quite clearly very good at what you do. Mainly you don’t leave people hanging around too long for." "So easy to talk to her and she understood what I wanted. She put me at ease and I cant thank her enough"

Faye Blair LLB

Faye was excellent, sensitive and acted very well to the time constraints we faced. Great service and dealt with compassion at such sad times made the process less painful very professional.

Jamie Dobbs ACILEx

Over the last forty years I have cause to deal with many law firms both in a personal and professional capacity, including some ‘top’ London Companies. In all of those dealings I have never found anyone as proactive and so willing to offer help and advice as Jamie Dobbs. During the last two years Jamie guided my parents through the completion of Lasting Powers of Attorney. Helped myself with the use of the LPA and recently dealing with Probate and Estate Administration following their death.

Mike Pepper MA

This is the second time we have used Mike Pepper at Maples Solicitors in the sale of our house. We cannot praise Mike enough for the highly efficient and professional service that he has provided us with. He is by far the best solicitor we have ever worked with, and the service that he has provided us with has gone far and beyond anything we have ever experienced. We have found the whole process to be a very relaxing experience.

Claire Smith FCILEx

Claire Smith has been amazing in every way. I highly recommend her and I am so grateful for all her help. She’s professional on all levels, reliable, extremely organised and I will be recommending her to everyone. I’m very lucky to have had her representing me and I can’t thank her enough. She is an asset to Maples. Thanks so much Claire!

Anita Zaborniak

We found it a pleasure to deal with Anita Zaborniak, she was most helpful and informative and kept us up to date with the progress of the purchase of our new home. If we were to move again we wouldn’t hesitate to use Maples again.
